Total Foodie Needs Help
Posted 11 April 2012 - 04:11 PM
The recommendation is that I try to lower my carb intake and try to increase my protein but honestly I am stumped about what I should and shouldnt eat.
I have lost weight in the past but it wasnt done in the healthiest way so I dont want to repeat my mistake.
In order to be successful I know myself enough to know that I will need to make a menu plan and stick to it.
Any recipes or healthy options that you found yummy? (I'm worried I may starve lol)

I also always opt for whole grains/whole wheat whenever possible but read labels because they can make an item look healthy when it may not be.
I know this is fairly basic stuff but...It's what I do & I've dropped effortlessly from 160 to 146! Good luck!!!!!
My personal feeling is there is little you should avoid entirely: all things in moderation! I do absolutely avoid all artificial sweeteners & processed foods as much as possible, for example.
Ps I do allow myself a treat now & then too but try to have it earlier in the day so I have more time to work on "burning" it off! Probably deluding myself...

Exercise is also key.
EAT LESS MOVE MORE. Simplest and best advise I can offer.
I'm hoping to start climbing the chedoke stairs again in a couple of weeks if you want to join me. It's hard work, but worth it... I haven't been mobile in 8 months, so don't be intimidated.
9 IUIs, 12 months Fermara, 4 months Clomid, 5 rounds of injectable, 1 LAP, 1 HSG, 2 Uterine Biopsies, 1 Postcoital, 1 IVF, 2 FETs... 2nd Fesh Cycle IVF - ++Beta 110!
TTC#2 - Dreams coming true... Surprise BFP Au Naturel! Never really started trying, but never gave up hope on dreams coming true. 20w2, after 6 days of strict bedrest, we lost our baby boy, Emmett to my incompetent cervix and he was born sleeping. 24cm long, 0.67lbs he was the most perfect little angel and has brought with him many lessons for us to remember him by.
Lightening strikes twice apparently>>>> May 24 ++HPT, Followed by ++Beta. Numbers are low, but doubling. EDD Feb1/2013 ~ Baby Boy arrived 5 weeks early in under 2hrs. Left me with 4th degree tears. 2 years later, still pending reconstructive surgery In that time hubby had a vasectomy. Never thought we'd have a chance to take fertility into our own hands

This is cute and funny at the same time, i mean you love food and you want to lose weight anyways make a diet plan which contain low fats and calories.
Give preference to fruits and vegetables they are very good for you. Because they are rich in nutrition and almost zero on fats.
